Something out there likes to bite the young branches off my baby persimmons. It doesn’t seem to eat them afterward, just cuts them so cleanly that the first time I thought maybe I’d been careless with the lawn mower… Any idea what might do this (I have rabbits and groundhogs) and how to prevent them? My chicken-wire fence is clearly not encompassing enough.
(This persimmon is an Ichi, but they did the same to my Prok. I’ll be trying to root the cutting, but I didn’t have much luck last time.)
